Kieran Rylance, 21, died when he was hit by a train at Rossington level crossing on Saturday night.

Since then, grieving friends and family have paid a number of moving tributes to Kieran, known as Rylo, turning the crossing where he lost his life into a shrine decked with photos, candles, balloons, cards and flowers.

Money is continuing to pour into a GoFundMe appeal to pay for his funeral and yesterday the appeal reached a massive £3,000 just days after being set up.

Kieran was set to become a dad in the coming months and stickers bearing his name have also gone on sale to help cover the cost of the funeral.

Friends and family are also organising a sponsored walk from the crossing to Armthorpe on October 30.
